As a publisher I’m always intrigued as to which books generate publicity. I was fascinated therefore by this article about a book which, despite media silence, still managed to climb its way to the top of the best seller charts. The book in question is written by a top psychiatrist who became disenchanted with her professions over dependency on prescription drugs.
You see what Dr Kelly Brogan discovered is that she could treat her depressed patients more successfully through vitamin supplementation and good nutrition than ever she could through expensive pharmaceutical drugs. If you think about it the implications of this are huge. Drug companies actually have no interest in our health at all. They are motivated primarily by the need to make money for their shareholders. which is why when a book comes along that challenges the need for their products they start getting uptight and finding all kinds of ways of silencing their critics.
Media companies who often derive much of their advertising income from the same companies simply fall into line to appease their paymasters. Times are changing however and fortunately there are now enough people who realise they have been taken for a ride for too long who through a numerous health and lifestyle networks can still bring the truth to light.
